When It Comes to Trade Whirlpool Tries To Have Its Cake And Eat It Too - Forbes
Samsung is building a washing machine factory in Newberry County, South Carolina. The plant is nearing completion, 250 workers have already been hired, sometime in 2018 the plant will have 500 workers producing washers and possibly other appliances, and eventually nearly 1000 workers will be employed there. LG is just beginning work on a plant in Clarkesville, Tennessee, so soon both major importers will be manufacturing some of their washing machines in the U.S., creating jobs for several thousand Americans.

If Whirlpool's foreign competitors are already in the process of moving some of their manufacturing footprint to the U.S., why is a trade action needed?

Why are companies moving to the Southeast? They want proximity to their customers, German consul says - The Greenville News

The time difference is better for companies calling back to their native Germany compared to locations on the West Coast, and, in particular, South Carolina is a right-to-work state, though it can be a concern to some given Germany’s strong union presence, he said.

Glass Half Full: The 2017 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index - A.T. Kearney
The United States tops the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Confidence Index for the fifth year in a row. This streak ties with the longest prior run that the United States had at the top of the Index (ending in 2001), and likely reflects the enduring attractiveness of the US market in terms of sheer size and a relatively open regulatory environment for foreign investment. Investors may also be motivated by protectionist rhetoric, as FDI would give them a local footprint in the world’s largest economy. In addition, investors have a very bullish outlook for the North American economy—with the United States and Canada the two domestic economies about which investors are most optimistic this year compared with last year. It is thus no surprise that Canada rounds out the top five in this year’s Index.
